Host Checker problem IE8 with Proxy-Pac

Hi everybody,


i experience a problem with the host checker on IE with Proxy PAC-File.
When I login, it seems that the Host Checker runs into a infinite loop, causing the IE to crash.

Can anyone confirm this issue?

I'm using:

Juniper SA Version 7.1R1 (build 17675)

Internet Explorer 8


Test PAC-File:


function FindProxyForURL(url, host)
{

return "PROXY servername.domain.intern:3128";

}


Debug-Log:


JuniperSetupClient.exe JuniperSetupClient p2088 t13D8 dsSetupParameters.cpp:85 - 'DSSetupParameters::getParameter()' Host=https://MYHOST.COM
JuniperSetupClient.exe JuniperSetupClient p2088 t13D8 dsSetupRequestHandler.cpp:384 - 'DSSetupRequestHandler::retrievePreauthCookie()' InternetGetCookie() succeeded, err=0

--> its going to repeat the last 3 messages.... and after a while:

-->here it's starting all over again

Re: Host Checker problem IE8 with Proxy-Pac

Hey,

are you using wildcards in your proxy-exceptions? such as:

*.secureaccess.com?

I had exactly this issue with a looping Hostchecker and solved it by entering all proxy-exepted URL's manually, without wildcards and it worked:

bla.secureaccess.com

Re: Host Checker problem IE8 with Proxy-Pac

Thanks for youre reply!

To exclude possible problems with special PAC configurations I used a test config that looks like this:

function FindProxyForURL(url, host)   {              return "PROXY servername.domain.intern:3128";    }

...so no wildcards or anything special, but the problem still exists.

Re: Host Checker problem IE8 with Proxy-Pac

No, I didnt mean the entry in the proxy-pac-file. I meant the one at the manually defined proxy settings in IE or FF that is getting changed automatically by the SA. Is your SA's URL in those proxy-exceptions set with a wildcard?

That was the problem we experienced!

Re: Host Checker problem IE8 with Proxy-Pac

Sorry... but I didn't get it! Can you explan where exactly the SA's URL sould be set?

The only place I know where proxy-settings get changed by the SA is " Network Connection Profiles > Proxy Server Settings". But dose this has an effect on the host checker?

Thanks!

Re: Host Checker problem IE8 with Proxy-Pac

No, I meant your Web-Browser on the Client. if you go to internet options -> connections -> proxy...

Have you set the URL of the SA there in the proxy-exeptions? if not...then this is not the problem you have. was worth a try Smiley Happy i had exactly this looping issue because of that, so i thought it might be the same for you.
